Where: Washington D.C.

When: November 7th-9th

What: The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ) - an annual gathering in Washington,

D.C., to commemorate the UCA martyrs and an opportunity for members of the Ignatian family

(Jesuit institutions and larger church) to come together in the context of social justice and

solidarity. During the two day conference members of SLU's delegation will learn, reflect,

network, and explore the integral connection between faith and justice. The Teach-In is a place
